Circuits Intégrés Photoniques Pour haut Débit
6_POD aims to: - Master a key technology within the field of very high bit rate METRO Access telecom application. - Answer to new markets needs linked to new services (Video on Demand, Entertainment…). - Realise technological breakthrough thank's to new technologies development like PIC (Photonic Integrated Circuits) to adress fabrication of very high bit rate (4x10Gb/s) emitter receivers development to transmit @ 4 wavelength [WDM « Wavelength Division Multiplexing » technology] up to 40/80 km (Metro telecom market in a first step) & potentially long haul-Intercity connexions- in a second step.

A new technology platform to manufacture very high bit rate 4x10Gb/s transmitters & receivers modules.
All components and modules identified at the beginning of the project were produced and optical budget of the project between a 4x10Gb/s transmitter module and a 4x10Gb/s receiver module was achieved with good margins.

Demonstration integrated components (PICs and Bar driver) made in 6_POD is a world first.
